The deranged homeless man looked into the stabbings two modern art museums Employees ranted in bizarre ways on social media on Sunday – while still on the run from police.
“Bipolar is a hard road to hack” Gary Cabana railed on Facebook. “DR. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde on the 2 ‘alleged’ days I ‘played’: 2/24 +. 3/9. Totally blind page when I received ‘the letter’ from Daniel P.
“NOTE to the miserly Beeyotches of the world, words are sharper than knives,” the tirade read. “THEN you will be framed and (sic) evicted from MoMA (not just the films but ALL ART) by a bitter old woman who will silence you if you laugh during comedy. She is the threat, NOT ME.”
Cabana, 60, calls the allegations a “total scam job” by museum officials.
“What is worse? Hackers or Journos,” he wrote. “Right now I LOVE MY HACKERS for taking my mind off this MoMA side job. THERE WERE NO DISTURBANCES.”
In what appeared to be a reference to Saturday afternoon’s bloodshed, he wrote: “It wasn’t SCREAM 6 at MoMA, it was a poke-poke-poke wake-up call. j [sic] the frame job MoMA, get your facts straight.”
Cabana also taunted police officers on his Instagram Page while responding to commenters urging him to turn himself in to the police.
“They knew who I was all along but the idiots wasted hours searching the museum when I was obviously long gone with hundreds of witnesses watching but there were no HEROES in the crowd that day ‘ he happily told one user.
“NYC has turned into a bunch of MIND YO BIDNESS PUSSIES,” he wrote. “Not one person followed me as I ran down 53rd Street (sic) with my face bloodied, where security guards hit me with a piece of Plexiglas…”
He added the hashtag “poetic justice.”
Disturbing video released by police on Sunday features a man identified as Cabana hopping across the famous museum’s counter and stabbing workers after being told his subscription has been cancelled.
Police said Cabana had two breakouts at the museum, which resulted in his membership being canceled – and leading to Saturday’s attack.
He fled the museum and was still on the run as of Sunday afternoon – when he posted the twisted screed to his Facebook page.
Cabana allegedly freaked out when he was turned away around 4 p.m. when he tried to attend a screening of “Bringing Up Baby” at the museum, authorities said. Both victims were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police arrived at the Midtown homeless shelter where Cabana lives on Sunday and spent hours questioning staff and residents before leaving empty-handed.
“I know him,” said 64-year-old resident Elmer Olsen. “He is my neighbour. Been here for about three weeks. Three or four weeks. He is calm. never says a word Just nod.”
According to his Instagram pageCabana claims to be a Big Apple culture buff who frequents Broadway theaters, local music venues and museums including MoMA.
Museum officials did not respond to requests for comment on Sunday.
